Description

Hi, where do I find out what does a stock Wordpress 4.6. on apache, log? we would like to know if it is possible to find log traces of plugins being installed and uninstalled in our site, and post revisions being deleted. (suspecting unauthorized access). We don't have any specific monitoring plugin that we added. But I noticed that Wordpress does have a file access.log.
And what about the web server logs? would they reflect such things? how about if the mysql logging was turned off, would this act be logged somewhere?

thanks

Hi there, and welcome to Trac.

WordPress doesn't do any kind of logging by it self, that would either have to come from a plugin, or your own webserver (access.log is a default name given to certain logfiles from a webserver for example).

Unfortunately this isn't really a problem with WordPress it self (which this tracker is all about), and is more of a support request. As such I'll mark this ticket as invalid, but I do encourage you to to create a thread at our support forums if you'd like some help with your setup.
